This recipe is delicious, but the raisins coupled with the brown sugar make it too sweet. I might try substituting some of the brown sugar for flour. The time and temperature also work with just one big tart (I think mine is 9 inches). I also didn't have any nutmeg, and cinnamon was an OK substitute. Read More

These were easy to make but I found they had too much lemon. Otherwise these are good. Read More

I doubled the recipe but added only 3/4 of a cup of raisons total and also a good cup of chopped pecans poured it into two 9" pie crusts and baked for 15 minutes cooled for one hour and they turned out great. I didnt bake them as long as recipe called for as they would have come out burnt. Taste tested on friend and he survived with a smile! Read More
